Lamar Athletic Development

Welcome to Lamar Athletic Development! The Cardinal Club is the fundraising arm of the Lamar University Athletic Department. Comprised of over 700 members who provide invaluable support to over 400 Lamar student-athletes annually, we are thankful for their continued generosity and support.

Cardinal Club Members support all 17 Lamar athletic programs through any of the following:

  • Annual Memberships
  • Philanthropic Giving
  • Priority Seating Rights
  • Facility Initiatives

The financial support generated by the Cardinal Club works to alleviate the costs of the student-athlete scholarships as well as providing a positive impact on our student-athletes in the classroom, on the field of play and beyond.

With constantly rising educational expenses and the fact that Lamar Athletics continually strives to build on the tradition of excellence that we've all come to expect, your membership is more important now than ever.

The Lamar Athletic Development office is located inside the Montagne Center at 211 Redbird Lane in Beaumont, Texas. To contact the Cardinal Club, call (409) 880-2319 or email


The Lamar Athletic Development Office, the fundraising arm for Lamar University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, is committed to generate the philanthropic support necessary to put each of our 17 sports, over 400 student-athletes, in a position to succeed academically and athletically while contributing to the financial sustainability of the athletic department.


The Lamar Athletic Department relies on the generous support of alumni, friends, and business partners to help provide each of our student-athletes with the resources needed to succeed. As the cost of a quality education and means required to maintain a first-class athletic program continues to rise, our reliance on philanthropic support is more important now than ever.


Cardinal student-athletes are able to accomplish all academic and athletic success through the generous support of you, the donor. By impacting the lives of those who proudly wear a Lamar uniform, we take pride in knowing your investment will continue the future success and traditions of Lamar University Athletics.
